COMMERCIALIZE emerging technologies.
CREATE global solutions.

With the World Health Organization identifying growing pressures facing the projected 9 billion world inhabitants by 2050, it is more important than ever to leverage emerging technologies that create sustainable solutions for these global challenges.

Now in its 21st year, COMS focuses primarily on entrepreneurship and marketable solutions—in addition to science and technology. It is a hands-on, practical meeting to assist you in bringing your research to market, finding new customers and networking with investors, suppliers and other entrepreneurs.
